With just five minutes and a few pantry staples, you can make your own delicious Homemade Taco Seasoning. Say goodbye to store-bought packets and enjoy a fresh, homemade taste every time!
I have always liked tacos. But for some reason when I would use the store-bought taco seasoning mix, there was something I just did not like about the seasoning. So, I stopped making them...
Until the local taco truck got me hooked again! They had such a great flavor and used fresh cilantro…yum! I decided to try making tacos with homemade taco seasoning instead. And the results were amazing! Now we have been making tacos once a month!
This recipe is easy to prepare. Just combine all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Mix it up well. And…you’re done.
Why make your own taco seasoning?
- cut down on sodium
- cut out additives, preservatives, and coloring that you find in a store-bought package
It is not a hot and spicy seasoning, but just a great mix of flavors. So give this taco seasoning a try and you might start having a weekly taco night! Check out our Taco Night post for our taco recipe using this taco seasoning.
